My Capstone Project aims to blend the old with the new. It's about taking tried-and-true farming practices and breathing new life into them with innovative, sustainable solutions. It seeks to balance making a living from the land and caring for it for future generations.

The project's core revolves around Organic Worm Tea, a natural product we've been developing and testing. This process involves rolling up our sleeves, getting our hands dirty, and observing the tea's effect on various farms, including those run by immigrant farmers who bring unique farming traditions from their home countries.

But this project isn't just about my local farming community; it's also about the bigger picture. My project aims to inspire more farmers to adopt these practices by showing that sustainable farming can pay the bills. Ultimately, this could trigger a ripple effect, transforming the world of agriculture into one that's healthier and more sustainable.
